If you know someone whose name means a funny or offensive word in your language.

What do you do!? I know this woman who has a name that means something funny in my language. I don't mean to make fun of her in anyway at all but I can't help but laugh when I call her. It is so rude of me to do that and she has no idea. Still in my attempts to not laugh when I speak with her, I avoid using her name at all. I can't seem to control myself and I feel absolutely childish about it but what should I do!?

I am sure the woman realises that people will find her name funny and is probably used to it. I think I would also do my best not to say her name when talking to her because I wouldn't want to upset her. If I knew her well, I would probably explain that I found it difficult.
